MLB Renaming ‘Disabled List’ Because It Might Be Offensive

Major League Baseball, meet the PC mob.

Published

on

After 104 years, Major League Baseball will do away with the “Disable List” in order to please the politically correct mob.

“Major League Baseball will rename the disabled list as the ‘injured list,’ a source familiar with the plan told ESPN,” according to a Thursday report.

“The league will make the change out of concern that the term ‘disabled’ for injured players falsely conflates disabilities with injuries and an inability to participate in sports,” the report continued.

The term “disabled list” has been used since it was established by the National League in 1915.

Soon enough, the “National League” will find itself in hot water for excluding international baseball viewers and players, and will likely have to change its name too.

According to the report, the rules for the “injured list” will remain the same as the rules for the now-defunct and anti-PC disabled list. There is currently a 10-day “injured list” for players with minor injuries, and a 60-day “injured list” for players with more serious injuries.

Virginia School District Stops Celebrating Dr. Seuss on Read Across America Day Because of the “Racial Undertones” in His Books

It’s all so tiresome.

Published

on

The Loudoun County School District in northern Virginia has stopped celebrating Dr. Seuss during Read Across America Day because of the “strong racial undertones” in some of his books.

Research in recent years has revealed strong racial undertones in many books written/illustrated by Dr. Seuss. Examples include anti-Japanese American political cartoons and cartoons depicting African Americans for sale captioned with offensive language,” the district wrote in a statement.

Given this research, and LCPS’ focus on equity and culturally responsive instruction, LCPS provided this guidance to schools during the past couple of years to not connect Read Across America Day exclusively with Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Dr. Seuss and his books are no longer the emphasis of ‘Read Across America Day’ in Loudoun County Public Schools,” the statement added.

To be clear, this does not mean that Loudoun County School District is outright banning Dr. Seuss’ books. They are still available for children to read in their libraries and classrooms.

Read Across America Day is celebrated every year on March 2, the day of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, and many schools across the country celebrate National Reading Month every March.

The National Education Association, which created National Reading Month and Read Across America Day, started to distance themselves from explicit promotion of Dr. Seuss in 2017 and now promotes non-white authors who write books about “racial justice,” “inclusivity,” and so on.

Dr. Seuss, whose real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel, worked as a political cartoonist in addition to illustrating and writing children’s books. Interestingly enough, Geisel was a passionate supporter of FDR and a lifelong liberal Democrat.
